Lots of people screw up their spelling these days, and it’s always funny to find protest signs with things spelled wrong.

Teabonics? Are the Liberals making fun of blacks here? Is their inner racist coming out again?

See, a funny sign, and it comes with a misspelling.

And that sign was at a left-wing anti-war protest (yes, they still happen all the time, it’s just the media doesn’t cover them anymore. When’s the last time you heard the name “Cindy Sheehan”?)

Do you really think people do spacing measurements when they are writing their signs?

The weird thing about that sign is that the “r’ and the “f” are lowercase, while everything else is uppercase. But I think that was the sign-maker as well, not a photoshop.

I don’t really think the NY Daily News was going around photoshopping signs for a story. People can’t spell. In the (apparently photoshopped) give Obama a bj sign, the word “Somebody” is spelled “Sombody”.

I bet some of these people even know they got it wrong, but it’s too hard to go back and re-do the sign.

Syracuse, anyone?

So “Teabonics” = insult Tea Party people comparing them to black yuts.

And “Teabagger” = insult Tea Party people comparing them to homosexuals.

Leftists don’t see the irony of this??

I don't either. I think some leftist goon shopped some of them and the News just ran with it.

Very telling indeed. Of course the MSM won’t catch it much less even criticize it.

My thoughts exactly, a FReeper made that sign:)

Well said. Lots of evidence of that here on Free Republic. But as somebody already pointed out, I'd love to see this paper cover OTHER protests in this way. Especially the Million Man March, to site one example.

The only reason we have signs that are misspelled is our people have the freedom to create their own signs; the Lib masters don't trust their slaves to make their own.

Also, if one takes a quick look at the posts at Huff Post just about every other post has grammar and/or spelling problems.

DU has started using “hugh” and “series”. I laugh every time they use it

“Best to leave such inside jokes off the protest signs.”

I disagree. Personally, I love the secret code. It is kinda like the secret handshake!

Note that “HUGH” is slightly lighter red than each of the other words. It looks like a photoshop job.

The merit of the story is irrelevant when the sentiment is correct.
